US Navy submarine aircraft carrier

Iíve seen stuff on the ideas of submarine carriers before but this piece shows more detail than most. Mach 3 VTOL anyone?

The last thing we need are more drones, what happens if control is lost?
That being said, I'd like to remind everybody in a manner reminiscent of the SNL bit on Julian Assange, that no matter how I die: It was murder (even if there was a suicide note or a video of me peacefully dying in my sleep); should I be framed for a criminal offense or disappear, you know to blame.

Wishful thinking I'm afraid, there's LOADS of them here already.

And they'll crash, just like real aeroplanes do when control is lost.
Any aircraft can be improved by fitting longer wings, and/or a longer fuselage

Hmm, I could just see such a boat launching navalized Navaho missiles instead of those fighters.  I suspect the sizes would be about the same.
